The small system that moved through yesterday was quite the violent one which deluged the area and caused localized flooding, and it has now been confirmed that tornado touched down on Long Island and made its way through Great River, Oakdale, Bohemia and Ronkonkoma. That is the basic area where ISP is located which is 35-40 miles east of JFK.

Quoting B6JFKH81 (Reply 10): That is the basic area where ISP is located which is 35-40 miles east of JFK.
I was working at ISP when three funnels passed directly over my office...(upstairs in the large hangar) and 4 miles south, down the road, two homes were damaged where the funnels made ground contact. The roof of my office which is actually the hangar roof was vibrating w/ pulses of air pressure...Two vortexes passed over. The third I caught on video, only out the hangar door bay. You can see the rain/wind gust change direction 360 degrees counter clockwise in 10 seconds. Our customers computer showed the vortices traveling north right up Johnson Avenue, next to the hangar.
The large low in Michigan sent in a pulse off the ocean that developed into a small but intense low. On "Wunderground" you could actually view the rotation that spanned the width of Long Island. This spin spun several vortexes with one confirmed tornado. Tonight the low should pass north with another round of airport snarling T storms arriving here. The tornado was a wimpy F-0 yet the sound of the vortex passing overhead was obvious and very strange...sounded like 12 Huey's thumping the air overhead.

I'm not surprised by this image...it was raining so hard to actually see the funnels was next to impossible from my vantage point but you could hear them. You could also feel the ambient air pressure pulsing...the women in my work place were freaking out...they were really spun because the hangar had no basement. ...I told them to just pick a Gulfstream, any Gulfstream and strap yourself in...g

Quoting LONGisland89 (Reply 14): Anyway you can post or send me the video? I find it ironic that I move to Oklahoma and they have a below average tornado season and then my hometown (Oakdale) gets hit by one
So this is YOUR fault then...you scared the tornadoes from Oklahoma to Oakdale LOL!!!
